I had years, and many occasions of fainted, dizziness, saw different ENT doctors, after many tests, no result. ENT doctors could not determine what went wrong. I first saw Dr. Fitzgerald on 01-07-2015, after my complain on the symptoms and after answered his many question, he told me I have migraine, and prescribed Diazipan 5 for acute attack, and Notriptyline 10 mg for regular dosage, that worked. He is good at what he is doing as a professional nerve doctor. I highly recommend him.

Brilliant, Intelligent , Thoughtful, Kind Doctor. No one could help me with my vertigo over 35 year and Dr. Dennis Fitzgerald return me back to happy life, only after few procedures. I will recommend Dr. Fitzgerald 100% to everyone.

He was recommended to me for my vertigo symptoms. Right when he came into the room, he didn't ask about me, he asked how I heard about him. He is pompous, curt and rude. He'd ask me a question and then cut me off as I answered to basically argue with me and TELL me how I feel and TELL me that I have migraines (which I don't). His attitude was off-putting. I was afraid to answer wrong when he asked me anything b/c I knew he'd cut me off and make me feel stupid. I don't ever want to return.
